Samarth Agrawal was an analyst at the New York office of the French bank Société Générale. He printed out the company's proprietary high-speed trading code and leveraged the documents into a high paying job with a rival firm. The Court affirmed his convictions under the Economic Espionage Act, and the National Stolen Property Act. Printing the code transformed the otherwise intangible trading codes into a "tangible object" under the NSPA, and the securities traded via the stolen code satisfied the product and nexus requirements of the EEA. US v. Agrawal.
